What is your current favorite blush and highlighter combination?

I really love Fenty Beauty’s Afternoon Snack/Mo’Honey–it’s a duo to begin with, but I love layering those two.

Right now, it’s Becca Foxglove (I’ve been using it almost every day) and TooFaced Sweetie Pie Bronzer, though I will often use the Sweetie Pie on its own as the perfect morph of blush and bronzer in one.

Some favorite blush I’ve been wearing lately…MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough. Origins Pinch Your Cheeks Blush in Rose Dust. Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Melon Pop. MAC Warm Soul. Milani Petal Primavera

I haven’t worn highlighter in awhile but when I do I wear Becca Moonstone or MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Highlighter in Lightscapade or Benefit Dandelion Twinkle or Black Moon Cosmetics Bioluminescent Moonlighter in Squid or Fenty Killawatt Highlighter in Lighting Dust

I just ordered some Black Mon highlighters — pretty excited about it! They’re in shipping phase right now, but I can’t wait to get them!

I know I haven’t even had it a week, but I’m loving Ofra Covent Garden with the Bronze shade from Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette 002! Covent Garden also looks great with UD Noho blush, too!

I think Aromaleigh’s Diana (pale peach base with silvery-blue shift), and Benefit’s Dandelion (neutral-warm pink). I apply my blush and highlighter the opposite of what I suspect most people do: highlighter straight over foundation, then setting/finishing powder, then blush. I find the end result works better for me than the typical approach. I do often include a cream blush in my layering, and when I do I go 1) cream blush over foundation, 2) highlighter over cream blush, 3) setting/finishing powder, 4) powder blush.

I haven’t been very creative in that respect this summer. Mostly, I’ve been using e.l.f. Blush in Gotta Glow on the daily, because I’m trying to use up my last pan. I’m almost there! On vacation, I wore theBalm Balm Beach with Too Faced Unicorn eyeshadow as the HL pretty much every day.

Perennial favorites are either Notoriously Morbid Osteomancy or MUG Celestial with either UD Bittersweet or LORAC Ultraviolet. I really like Becca Opal Flashes Jade with Tarte Exposed. ABH Moonchild Pink Hearts with almost anything. UD Fireball with my coral blushes.

I have been using Dior blush in 999 with Becca Pearl highlighter. They are both very pigmented and with the blush being so strongly pigmented, I usually put the Becca down first and then the blush and then buff them both out with my Guerlain perles

I don’t generally use highlighters, but I have just purchased the Pixi Beauty Peach honey duo, so maybe that will be my blush/highlighter duo favourite.

Clinique Cheek Pops in Heather Pop and MAC Extra Dimension highlighter in Double Gleam. Both are my favorites individually or used together. I never get tired of them.

When I use highlighter I apply it first, then blush. Favorite lately has been Natasha Denona SuperGlow in fair, Burberry Blush in Earthy (behind the apples of my cheeks blended back under my cheekbones) and Tarte Exposed (on the apples blended into the earthy.)
